Nice French-owned hostel, relaxed atmosphere though the big tv doesn't help. Laundry facilities are used for the hostel itself most of the times, so you kinda have to be lucky to get to use them as a guest. Wifi (first hour free) and computers available, three small but free places to park and a well equipped kitchen make it an okay base for those who travel by car. Located just off of Ponsonby, but in a less-than-scenic industrial area. Owner is helpful and bunks are okay. All in all: average.

Thank you for your review. I need to correct some inaccurate comments:we do have 5 free carparks at all times for the guests to use and 8 more over the week ends. (off street carpark is free too). About The Laundry, guest always have the priority, the hostel uses it only if it is free and offers to start it up for you if it is busy when you require it. Thanks again

This huge place makes you realise what an industrie backpacking really is. Good facilities, a clean bed and friendly staff in the middle of the city centre makes it a good spot to spend the night though.

Okay for 18 year old party people, but not a real travellers hubb. Beds are poor, location right in the city centre.

Hi Melvin, Thanks for taking the time to place feedback on your stay at Nomads Fat Camel and I agree that it is a social hostel best suited to a younger clientelle. If passing back through Auckland I we would love you to stay at our more modern hostel Nomads Auckland located just 40m down the street! Kind regards Nemo

Stayed in a single bed room, it could've used some colour. Bit of traffic noise but never too bad. Bathroom was modern and clean, the kitchen small and outdated. Nothing much going on but fine to sleep off your jet lag.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. Glad you found our Bathroom to be modern and clean. We aim to be comfortable and affordable, a simple a basic accommodation, including colours and the furniture. We are nestled in the heart of Auckland City Centre and unfortunately outside noise is out of our control. We have 2 kitchens in our hostel and both are going to be renovated very soon. Happy you had a fine night of sleep. Kind regards Andre Vidoto Centre Manager
